A must read!,
This review is from: Deliberative Democracy in America: A Proposal for a Popular Branch of Government (Hardcover)
Not only is this book an important contribution to the deliberative democracry debate, it is essential reading for anyone concerned with the future of American democracy. Coming at a time when political discourse has been reduced to television soundbites, the inane commentary of media "pundits," cynical, poll-driven stump speeches, and barely coherent, question-dodging press conferences, Leib's ideas about a fourth, "popular," branch of government couldn't be more timely.
This book will appeal to specialists and amateurs alike. I highly recommend it.
